Happy Package

About a month ago, Heather from Fancy Alter Ego and I came up with an idea to exchange packages based on things that make us happy. We both needed a pick me up to get us through this sleepy funk we’ve been in, at least the funk I was in made me sleepy and unproductive. I basically failed at the 100 happy days project, which if you haven’t heard of, is a challenge where you take a photo everyday for 100 days of the things that make you happy. My problem is, I’m happy multiple times a day, how do I capture the best moment in a photo or how do I not post the same photo 100 times?! Hahaha. Anyways, here’s the package I received from Heather:

*Don’t forget to see what I sent Heather!*

My gift came in box, obviously. But it was a great surprise to see this super cute, very spring-y and cheerful reusable bag! She also wrote a thoughtful message on a cute notecard.

All the contents of my happy package; I devoured the chocolates, yay Easter candy! I also had a great time relaxing and flipping through the Marie Claire magazine, I can’t remember the last time I just sat down with a magazine! [Read more…]


Lately… I haven’t been around. Actually, I’ve been EVERYWHERE.

I mentioned my sister got married last February, while being pregnant, although she was engaged for a good year. Can you believe she and her husband have been friends since 1999?! He posted this super sweet status that I couldn’t help but share with you:
Cute relationship status

Seriously, how cute is that?!
Now for cuteness overload… This is my new baby nephew, Hayato Armando Sanchez. Isn’t he adorable?! I vow to be his favorite aunt and to spoil him to death 🙂

Other than that, I’m going back to school! Summer session starts in June and I’m getting my head in gear for the change. I know it’ll be challenging with working full time and trying to schedule a quick trip to see little Hayato but I’m determined to work it out. Blogging will most likely take the back burner but I’ll do my best to really focus on Budziak Beauty when I have spare time.

Last but definitely not least, I’m buying a car! Until now, I’ve had used cars that were handed down to me. Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely grateful for them but they just weren’t me. Here’s my most recent car when it arrived after moving to TX:
2001 Pontiac Grand Am

The Acura RDX has been my affordable dream car for as long as I can remember, it’s not too big and not too small, yet it’s still stylish & attractive. This car symbolizes where I’ve been and how far I’ve come; after completely messing up my credit by maxing out a ridiculous $10,000 credit card + a few more, I’ve come full circle and have steadily been growing my credit worthiness while being responsible. It feels really good to be where I am right now. I’m excited for what the future has in store. While I won’t be getting a brand spankin’ new one, I’ll have a newer used one, similar to the new one below:

That said, I couldn’t have done it without the help of Credit Boards, so I feel like they should have a shout out here. I recommend exploring the site’s forums/threads if you have ANY credit/personal finance related issues. Credit isn’t as evil as everyone makes it out to be, it’s only evil if you don’t know better, credit can be a wonderful thing! CB is basically a DIY credit fix & education website.

Influenster UniVoxBox 2014

I recently received my Influenster UniVoxBox the other day. You should have seen my excitement for the arrival of my package! Curiousity got the best of me and I ended up Googling other bloggers’ reviews on the contents of this mysterious package, so I already knew what was in it when it arrived 😛
